LIFI conection and user positioning

LED devices have evolved steadily in recent times, so in addition to lighting allow other interesting applications. For example, one of the most important objectives is to reach complete and cheaper communication through them. Currently this is known as lifi, and some prototypes perform this functionality.
Is obvious this LED based communications have many applications one of the more useful is find position the user or item through the connection done previously thanks LiFi communication.
With this features, the LiFi communication can come to play an importat rol to different market as the automotive sector, users position inside of buildings, industry 4.0, etc.

Optiva Media developed a prototipe of LiFi communications the last year, and has as objetive keep research this kind of communication to get a device to the final user can use in the real live. On the other hand Geintra Group (UAH) developed in last years system positioning prototypes based on LED and IRED.
This proposal aims to develop communication and positioning systems to several sectors of industry, transport, etc..
